- Character development. When was the last time you've read about bad guys you 100% disliked, turning into new leaf, and somehow pulls at your heartstrings?
-Plot. Yes, the plot. You see, this is a shounen style novel, and an easy to see through goals are exactly how shounens are meant to be. In that sense, the MC here does a great job in being focused to his goal (LMAO). Aside from that, what I liked here is, though the plot a glaringly obvious that its common sense to see them crystal clear, it does not take away the feeling of curiousity towards the next chapter, i.e. You end up wanting more, and that is my definition of 'good story'.
-Pacing. I don't feel that it was either fast or slow. It simply feels just right. (Then again, that may due to Yoraigod's amazing amazing amazing grace with all the chapters pouring out.)
-MC is dense as heck. Ahem, though his dense-ness has its annoyances (its a running gag here), the times when its funny outweighs the cons, making for a funny MC that makes the story go forward without compromising the story (yes, I'm looking at you, typical JP MC that obly knows how to be 2D hero fjdkdvis). Some might not like his denseness, like someone in the review complaining why won't he just notice and start his harem... smh. I belive the issue is with the spoiled readers overdosed witb harem novels of how any MC with multiple possible heroines but never sticks his fingers to them all, is a spineless, cowardly, and useless MC when in fact, those harem MCs are the nasty f**kbois, must-stay-away-from, exist ONLY in some guilty delusions, that no normal girl would be attracted to. As for the collection of crazies, nymphos, and yandere in the so-called gatem? Yeah, sure, read more JP novel and lose sight of reality, and they will exist. In that sense, Dragoon MC, as an idiotic shounen MC, is NORMAL.
... Ahem, I digressed.
-Main Heroine. Though I said that the characters here are really great, I found the heroine particularly lacklustre when listed among the cast. She may be the MC's restraint or else the novel should be titled to 'Rudel's Misadventures', but still, I can't help but hope for more with her because I find the interactions between the two as less than desirable.
-Romance. As you might be clued in already, the romance here... well, this is as of ch68, I sincerely wish the interactions between the two (or more) could improve. Just my two cents.
